About Nutanix Clusters

Nutanix Clusters provides a single platform that can span private and public clouds but operates as a single cloud using Prism Central enabling true hybrid cloud architecture.

Using the same platform on both clouds, Nutanix Clusters reduces the operational complexity of extending, bursting, or migrating your applications and data between clouds. Because Nutanix Clusters runs Nutanix AOS and AHV with the same CLI, UI, and APIs, existing IT processes or third-party integrations that work on-premises continue to work regardless of where they are running.
